    What, someone here will now propose that Russia also needs to order a couple of training ships in Turkey. Ours did not want to finish Novik as an educational one. A pair of training ships of the Smolny type, project 887, celebrated their 40th anniversary. I don’t know if besides these two old men there are still training ships in the Russian fleet?
